“Green Mountain Standard Time” is a masterful collection of 11 western swing songs and a strong follow-up to last year’s national “Western Swing Song of the Year” award from their previous CD release, “Riding My Guitar,” celebrating Rick’s 50-year music career.
Five of the “Green Mountain Standard Time” songs, along with two additional co-writes, were written by band leader Rick Norcross. They continue his signature and slightly off-center approach with songs like “Don’t Do Me Like That With Your Cowboy Hat” and “I’m Gonna Take It With Me When I Go.”
“I Love Western Swing” is a tribute to the Founder, the Father and the King of Western Swing, a genre that began in Fort Worth, Texas in the early ’30s. This tune has been adopted as the theme song for the annual “Fort Worth Birthplace of Western Swing Festival” and movie of the same name.
The title track, “Green Mountain Standard Time,” is a co-write that came to the project from longtime Canadian songwriting pal, Grant Heywood. The retro-sounding track tells the story of the 60-year-long music career of Rick Norcross and what it means to sing in Green Mountain Standard Time.
